Hi, I picked up 3 autographed pictures of Women who I know are Leaders of all Girl Bands of the 40's. I can identify Rita Rio and Ina Ray Hutton by their signatures and the research I have done on line. Your site was most helpful. However, I have a signed photograph of a very pretty blonde (shoulder shot) in a print dress and signed "Val". No last name. Would you happen to know of a Woman band leader of that same time period who was named Val? I am assuming she is like the others and probably led an All girls Band. Thanks for any help in advance

Thanks for your great biographical profile on the legend, Melba Liston. As a fellow trombone player, I've always wondered about this enigmatic figure.
I also thought you might like to add Jackie Coleman to your list of ladies some day. She is a promising and accomplished young trumpeter based in NY, touring internationally.
